Likelihood of triggering
Triggering is possible, even from low additional loads, particularly on the indicated steep slopes (steeper than about 30 degrees). In certain situations some large, and in isolated cases very large natural avalanches are possible.
Your safety in the Warth-Schröcken ski area.
Protect yourself and others - health is the top priority!
We have taken several steps in the Warth-Schröcken ski area, to ensure that you can enjoy a day of skiing that is as relaxed and safe as possible. Therefore the queuing areas at the ski pass ticket offices are clearly marked and separated using a signage system. All of our ticket offices have similarly been equipped with hand sanitizer dispensers and glass partitions between guest and employees.
NEW! From the beginning of the 2020/2021 winter season: Online ticket shop
Can I buy my ski ticket online?
Yes. From the beginning of the 2020/2021 winter season, you can purchase your day ski passes safely and easily on our online shop. This avoids long waiting times and helps to keep the ticket office clear.
Is contactless payment possible in the ski area?
Yes. At all ski pass ticket offices and the majority of catering establishments on the mountain, you have the option to make contactless payments. We ask that you make use of this option!
Where in the ski area is wearing a face mask compulsory?
In chair lifts and gondola lifts, it is compulsory to wear mouth/nose protection for the entire journey. According to the Vorarlberg Land regulation, wearing a full face mask is also compulsory in stations as well as queuing areas, when keeping the minimum safety distance of 1 metres is not possible.
Is there the possibility, to get mouth/nose protection at the ski pass ticket offices?
Yes. Face masks covering the mouth and nose are available in all ski pass ticket offices.
Do i need a face mask on the piste?
No. On the pistes, no face mask is required.
Is there good ventilation in the cable cars and gondola lifts?
Yes. 14 of our 15 lifts are chair lifts, where there is constant ventilation. On gondola lifts, ventilation is provided by open windows and on chair lifts by open "bubbles",.
Can I dispose of used face masks or tissues in the lifts?
No. Please do not leave your used face mask or tissues behind in the cable cars. Dispose of these in the bins provided.
Where are the sanitising stations in the ski area?
We have made additional sanitising stations available in the toilet facilities, ticket office areas, mountain restaurants and also other public places (e.g. car parks, at the entrances to our buildings and ski stores).
Is everything being disinfected regularly?
Yes. All means of transport are disinfected at regularly-spaced intervals on multiple occasions throughout the day. Our gondola lift will be disinfected seamlessly and efficiently using state-of-the-art technology by an atomizer. Similarly, handrails, ATMs, toilet facilities, ski stores and first aid rooms will be disinfected to the extent necessary.
How many people will be seated in the gondolas and chair lifts?
Like all other public transport, a face mask covering the mouth and nose is also required when using gondolas and chair lifts. This means that our gondolas and chair lifts will be filled accordingly. Filling is based on the passenger volume.
How can employees protect themselves and customers?
All employees, who have direct customer contact (minimum safety distance non-existent) will wear a face mask covering the nose and mouth or will be separated from the customer by suitable protective measures (especially in ticket offices e.g. Glass separation walls). In addition to this, all cable car employees have been trained and made aware of uniform guidelines and rules about the Covid safety measures.
Is there someone responsible for Covid-19 on the ski lifts?
Yes. The cable car companies each have an employee responsible for Covid-19, who is responsible for the planning and implementation of the measures. We have similarly developed a hygiene and prevention concept, that can be used as a guiding principle for all employees.
What does the parking situation look like?
Our car parks provide enough space, for you to keep to the safety distance from other people. If it is not possible to maintain the safety distance, mouth/nose protection must be worn. Depending on the number of guests, the number of parking attendants will be increased to ensure a controlled process.
